Tis the season to get sprung, and I present you an hour’s worth of tunes to usher in this lascivious vibe. My selections hop across genres and delve deep into my musical collection, ranging from Skream to !!! to Classixx.
From LA to Scottsdale to Austin to Dallas to New Orleans to Miami, our GDD resident hooligans Troy Kurtz, BONES, and Burn Unit have taken the experience of the GDDRV journey and produced 3 essential sets wrapped into an hour of the ultimate vibe. It was recorded and created literally on the roadtrip while burning highways across the country. This was originally proposed for our guest mix on Evolution Radio (airing this Saturday 3/23), but we have decided to unleash it early for you dirty dancers, so you can catch up on all the action and step into the drivers seat of the GDDRV…

Our new shirt collaboration with out friends Sex Panther have arrived… we present to you the Live Fast x Dance Dirty Tee, kicking off 2013 with a bang and the first of our new designs for this year. To celebrate the collab, we’re throwing a shindig in LA this Thursday @ LURE in Hollywood, featuring DJ sets by Sex Panther themselves, along with our own GDD ruffians BONES & Troy Kurtz. We’re so excited about it, we’re giving away (2) shirts off the top of the first batch, plus a pair of tickets to the show this week (If you’re in LA!).
To celebrate the last VS of the year (and the end of the world as we know it?), we’re teaming up with our friends at The Well to bring you a SECRET GUEST (Boys Noize Records) all the way from France. Supporting the night will be a special b2b set from our own Troy Kurtz & Bones, along with a birthday performance from Ben Oprstu and sets from SF’s Realboy and Option4. Can you say, techno?
Seductive grooves. Deeper-than bass. Spot-on, haunting vocals courtesy of the duo themselves. ”Never Sleeping” gave me the chills and I’ve had “Such a Rush” stuck in my head since I first heard it. Our very own Troy Kurtz and partner Panic Bomber have nailed it.
Our very own Troy Kurtz brings you a truly unique mix of solid house grooves in his signature sexy suave, to commemorate his momentous relocation from Miami to LA. May this be a sign of more great things to come. Welcome to your new home, bud.
This Thursday, Santa Monica gets taken to the deep end as our familiars over at RollingTUFF take over our VERSUS party! The bottomless basslines will be led by Defected representative and LA’s own Human Life, along with our own wonderboy Troy Kurtz. Warming up the speakers will be directed by Young Diamond and Chemical Ali. If you lean toward the deeper side of house music, this is an intimate gathering you truly do NOT want to miss. This event will reach capacity – so please RSVP and arrive early to guarantee entry
Now, I don’t usually post unless something really strikes my fancy. Even more rare still will a mix inspire me to words. And the best part? It’s GDD’s very own Troy Kurtz today, absolutely nailing it with this mix he did with Panic Bomber, the first installment in their “Berlin Breeze” mix series. I’ve been consistently more and more impressed with what TK and Panic Bomber have been putting out of Miami since their deeper-than debut Never Sleeping. Life is good when it’s summertime and you can sit back and watch your colleagues and best friends become your favorite DJs in the world.
As the temperatures get hotter in July, so do the parties in Los Angeles. This Friday at Avalon is no exception, as CONTROL welcomes international heavyweights Style Of Eye, Lazy Rich and The Squatters. On top of that – supporting the night will be big room local Jeff T and our Miami-based GDD brethren Troy Kurtz. This event will reach capacity early, so please RSVP below and arrive before doors to guarantee entry!
Please email names to RSVP@gottadancedirty.com to be on our discount guestlist for the evening. All names must be submitted by 5PM on Friday.
This will be a very special week for our Thursday event in Santa Monica, as we’ll be celebrating two birthdays in one. I’m lucky to share the same birthday week as my pal Vivek Srinivasan, who heads up the DANCEiSM side of VERSUS, and we’re bringing in an AWESOME special guest for the occasion — a man who has never played VS before and one who we’ve wanted to grace the 1s and 2s at The Central for a long time. Supporting him will be a surfeit of talent including our buddy from Australia, Craig Willams, a back to back set from BONES and our Miami brother Troy Kurtz, and a closing world debut set from Shadynasty, the newly formed duo project of Shae B and Burn Unit. Needless to say it’s exactly how I want to celebrate my birthday.
